Hey everyone! So, I'm about to get to work on a new theoretical paper that I'm really excited about. I'm basically tying two different theories together and showing how they interact with each other. I'm mostly writing this paper for my own benefit, to get these thoughts onto paper and hopefully receive some constructive criticism. I would also love to get this paper out to the science community as a whole. I feel that I could really benefit off of their thoughts and criticisms, and possibly kick start something new. I doubt that my paper is very groundbreaking or anything (that would be really awesome if it is) but at the same time, I don't want to risk having my ideas taken and have someone else's name stamped on it. It's happened before from a friend of mine and I would hate to make that mistake again. So, I have a few questions that I was wondering if you guys could possibly help me out with: 1. How short should this paper be? I would love to add in as much detail as possible, but at the same time I don't want to over-saturate the reader with potentially uninteresting material. 2. Should I assume that the reader has previous knowledge of quantum mechanics, or should I explain it in a way that a non-science person would understand? It might bore scientifically minded folks, but it also might target a larger audience. 3. Can anyone recommend a good place to try and get it published? I know that Popular Science is a pipe dream, but maybe a similar magazine or website. Thanks in advance!
